Dancing with the Stars
8/7c ABC
Many had predicted that high-scoring Audrina Patridge would make it all the way to the elite Final 3 this season. However, last week one of this show's "shocking exits" occurred, leaving the judges stunned and Audrina out in the cold. Will this week's eliminated star be another early favorite following in her footsteps? But before anyone exits, Taylor Swift and Rod Stewart both make return appearances to the show's stage, and the cast of Broadway's Mary Poppins does a tap-dance number. — Jennifer Sankowski

The contestants are in for an unusual week when they're whisked away in military trucks to California's Camp Pendleton, where they live and train like marines.

30 for 30
8/7c ESPN
The new millennium got off to a bright start for Marion Jones, darling of the 2000 Sydney Olympics for hauling in five medals in track-and-field. A decade later, Jones is the poster girl for a sprinting contingent disgraced by an endless string of performance-enhancing drug cases. In "Marion Jones: Press Pause," John Singleton chronicles Jones' years of lying to the public and, ultimately, to federal investigators. The Oscar-nominated director also attempts to put the 35-year-old athlete's career back in the starting blocks as she explores new avenues, including a season in the WNBA with Tulsa.  — Roger Leister

America's Election Headquarters: The 2010 Midterms
9/8c Fox
Come January, will the House of Representatives hold daily tea parties (Nancy Pelosi NOT invited)? It could happen if the GOP picks up at least 39 seats. The same goes for the Senate if there's a 10-seat flip. Meanwhile, 37 governorships (and the redistricting clout that comes with holding a statehouse) are up for grabs. And will California go up in smoke? Prop. 19, which would legalize marijuana in the Golden State, is one of many ballot measures facing voters around the country today. Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos (ABC), Katie Couric (CBS), Shepard Smith (Fox) and Brian Williams (NBC) anchor network election reports, and if you want more (and more intense) coverage, the cable news channels will be happy to oblige. — Paul Droesch

10/9c BRAVO
D-list darling Kathy Griffin — the celeb-mocking queen and showbiz-bashing fiend — swoops in on Temecula, Calif., to deliver a stand-up set at the Pechanga Resort and Casino. Sassy, brassy Kathy takes no prisoners, addressing her fiery exchanges with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View and describing her mother's red-carpet experience at the Emmys.

Running Russell Simmons
